Research description

My main interest is understanding the role of genomic changes in development of cancer, with specific focus on melanoma and prostate cancer. The information obtained will also be used to develop approaches for better therapies. Studies are also underway to identify new biomarkers in serum and plasma that can be used to stage cancer growth and metastasis and to monitor response to therapy.
